Twitter is a blxxdy west world wasteland now with gunslinging Musk on the prowl. Every blue tick on the left has bulls eye painted on their back. The new Twitter overlord who once tweeted that comedy should be legal, apparently can’t handle it himself. In Musk’s dominion parody and satire is an unpardonable sin. Apparently you need to get a license to parody someone now. The ‘Chief Twit’ wrote that any profile impersonating someone needs to clearly specify “parody”, else will get permanently suspended. He mentions that there was a prior warning issued before suspension. However, after the verification rollout, there won’t be a warning.
Oh and if you change the name of your handle, you’ll risk losing your blue tick temporarily. So be wary about that as well.
Here’s a list of celebrity accounts that parodied Musk and paid the price
Kathy had changed her handle’s name to Elon Musk and so did Ian Woolford, a renowned and much beloved professor of Hindi from Australia. Woolford changed his handle’s name to Musks and cheekily posted “Twitter Tere Tukde Hong” Gang ko bhi $8 dene padenge / Even “Twitter Thou Shalt Trodden And Torn Into Bits” gang will have to pay $8!
This is getting too out of hand, along with the mass layoff that was announced with a mail that was as cold as a cobblestone. Half of the global workforce have been laid off including almost the entirety of team India. Musk blames the unavoidable terminations to the incurring loss in millions at the bird app. Founder Jack Dorsey apologized for the massive layoff at Twitter. However, you try to dissect this fiasco the layoffs were anyway coming. Most big techs are freezing hiring and axing a major chunk of their global staff. Recession is to partly blame. Meanwhile, there’s a gradual exodus to Mastodon. With advertising revenue on the dips and trickling twitter users to alternate platforms, it would be a classic tale of corporate hubris. However, hoping sanity prevails and things don’t get too out of hand. Don’t screw this Musk.
